Kokomo volleyball travelled to Tipton Thursday night. Starting slow, Kokomo was not able to pull out the desired victory. Instead the VolleyKats lost in four sets 14 – 25, 25 – 23, 20 – 25, and 22 – 25.
Though Kokomo lost in four sets, Malori Nichols shined offensively with sixteen kills, three aces, and sixteen digs. Middle hitters Abby Hansen and Jada Claire Broomfield both tallied seven kills. Broomfield also added twenty digs.
Jannessa Reece added five kills, one ace, and fourteen digs. Brooke Hughes and Correll Heath each added two kills to Kokomo’s offensive energy. Heath also added 38 assists, four aces, and fifteen digs. Sarah Stonebraker kept eighteen balls alive, and Jalynn Warden had a busy night, saving fourteen Tipton attacks from hitting the floor.
The Lady Wildkats will be travelling to Lafayette twice next week to take on Lafayette Jeff and McCutcheon.
